Andrée Poulin

If she could, Andrée Poulin would read from morning to night. Her love of reading is what brought her to writing. After working as a journalist for many years, she worked in international development. She has written over 30 books for children of all ages. Many have won awards, most notably the TD Children’s Literature Award (French language) for La plus grosse poutine du monde, now translated into English and published by Annick Press as The Biggest Poutine in the World (Spring 2016). Her stories deal with friendship, empathy, tolerance, poverty, and solidarity.

Andrée Poulin believes books can change the world. By setting her stories in Canada, Africa, and Asia, she takes her readers on adventures in discovering other cultures. Her latest book with Annick Press, Pablo Finds a Treasure (Fall 2016), gently introduces young readers to the plight of children their age who live in poverty.

The author loves to share with children her passion for reading and her pleasure for writing. She writes a blog, reviews books for the National Reading Campaign, and gives workshops for youth in schools and libraries.

Andrée was born and raised in Orléans, Ontario. She now lives in Gatineau, Quebec.
